From St. George to St. George
My departure from Nova Scotia was a day early as my ferry across Fundy cancelled, though I thankfully knew of a comfy, affordable room in St. George, New Brunswick. It was a pleasant visit, and rising early gave me the chance to chat with my friendly hosts over coffee & treats from the Country Store!
For whatever reason, I decided that the synergy of leaving St. George to arrive in previously-booked St. George was a positive sign; so saying "so long" to Canada was okay and I took my time cruising along Maine's route 1 with a waterfront stop before my next destination.
The transition back to the USA with 4 nights in my tent was just what I needed. I'd forgotten how much I loved waking to the sunrise and the birds singing, even on the few mornings where the temps were near 40 or less! While it was a cautious act to cycle to all of my destinations on the peninsula, the early evening sunset (oh yeah, time change!) with book in hand put me in relax mode rapidly.
Next up, a day's push to visit with family and friends in New England for a bit while fall is in the air.

Hi Judy! Slightly off-topic - Thank you for introducing me to Ian Rankin. I just finished Set in Darkness -- wow. I keep an eye out for him at library book sales etc and may have to go back through the Rebus novels chronologically. Enjoying your stories and photos as ever -- belated happy Columbus Day!

Fred! Glad your Rebus hooked! I, too, am constantly searching for more! Still have your Labor Day email among my box of many, sorry. Just completed my family & friends month-long tour yesterday, then drove 5 hours through the mountains of MD, WV and VA. In down time for 3 days before I begin anew with a month-long stay in NC to regroup! Happy to hear from you & will write soon! J
